DSU stands for Departmental Student Union and is run by an elected set of student executives. They stand as a connection between the students enrolled in the program or courses they represent and the faculty. Working with the department itself, the DSU has a chance to bring forth the concerns and ideas of the collective. As an individual group, the DSUs also organize events and do a plethora of other initiatives in the SFU community.
Getting involved is simple and ultimately worthwhile. If you are a student who is doing a major or minor, or is simply enrolled in a course in the department, you are eligible to participate. Joining a DSU lets you get involved in the university and meet people with similar academic interests. Check out the list of DSUs to find contact information or to learn more about each DSU.
